An Understanding
it was an understanding that found its way to her. she understood now. it had sunk in. good wasn't always going to win. she understood all too well. but that's not why you keep trying. you keep trying because you have to. you keep trying because if you don't, the dark really will always win. and that isn't an option. you keep trying because your heart can't live any other way. you keep trying because that is your way of living. you keep trying because ultimately, you believe in light. because ultimately you believe.
